Does anyone have the tab for "the Maiden's Prayer" an old Bob Wills fiddle tune? Also, I would love to chat with some other female flatpickers and anyone who would know of flatpicking books that have flatpicking duets in them in tab?

I have played for over thirty something years. I started in college during the folk era of the 60's. I have been flatpicking for about 8 years. I am a guitar teacher and try to teach in all the main music genres but prefer teaching country and flatpicking. I play in a musical group. We mostly entertain locally for community events and for senior citizen groups and retirement homes.

I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
